    [03x03] November 2nd, 2010

    I wonder whether Nein are getting cold feet now that the ratings have started to plummet...the figures are pretty low, and the show is being outrated by some real dross on the other channels...maybe that's why we got Eddie everywhere's IQ bonanza last night...?

    I'm sure there are reasons why the show migrated to nein but why are Freehand still doing it? The rest of their stuff ...like dancing with the stars and the nest...is pretty much either low-rent or at least fairly dim. that's reflected in the effort put in here...scripts? what scripts? shane...

    James Morrison isn't that bad!!

    I'm not keen...he comes over as smug and wooden and he clearly thinks a lot of himself. a better fit than charlie, but still not likeable in my book.

    Not a bad one to go out on...although I would still wager a few bucks on there not being a series 3. SBS is pretty skint and even the cut down version that is TGA is still an expensive thing to make. It's a pity that folks haven't got behind this series, 'cos i'm sure we'll miss it once all...

    Oh...was that him? I thought it was a barrel covered in neoprene.;)

    Sorry but I'm just not liking James as a presenter. His pieces to camera are stilted and he reads the scripted studio bits in a decidedly wooden way. Glad I'm not the only one to have spotted the wussiness...let's not forget that he was also the only one of the three who didn't blast away in the...

    No-one else seems to agree with me, but I'm finding James hard to watch. He seems overly smug, and doesn't seem to want to cock about in the grand tradition of TG. he seems to take himself too seriously. Am I being unfair?

    CHARLIE RESIGNED!!!

    It's really strange to read folks saying "Hey - I didn't mind Charlie that much"...maybe you should've contributed that thought when everyone else was bagging him during the series. I'd be very surprised if the negative audience reaction to CC wasn't a factor in his non-appearance for series 2...

    Well I don't have any reps anyhoo, and personally I find Mr Vovo's comments very entertaining. Long may he post. In fact he WAS the most negatively surprising person here until Dave2003 blew him out of the water with his Sam Newman suggestion...I'm still chortling over that one. Anyone who...

    But Dave...Sam is a GOOSE..haven't you noticed? as for Glenn being a foil for anyone or anything, I'd limit it to covering sausages on a Weber. Dave is in front for the award for the loopiest lineup proposal so far...in order to beat him, I'd have to suggest Bert Newton, Rhonda Burchmore and...

    Dave...what WERE you thinking??? Am I alone in thinking that Sam Newman must never be allowed in front of a camera* ever again? And how did Warren become evil all of a sudden? Are YOU Glenn Ridge as well as Mr Vovo? *speed cameras excepted

    My crystal ball(s) tell me that all three will be back next season...I think we'd better get used to that idea. Sorry, Catriona (shudder). Sorry, Glenn Vovo.

    I thought this was a fitting final episode...some good stuff...notably an improved Charlie. Some cringeworthy moments though. Warren's reaction to being left behind in the shop ("Oh, no, they've gone without me"), plus some of the in-studio stuff. They need a new/more writers and a notebook...

    At last it can be revealed...here's a photo of IcedVovo taken outside a Kia showroom. Now THAT explains everything!

    Stiggy...I'm at a loss fer words...at the same time that you're lambasting all Aussie presenting talent, you're seemingly happy to raise JC,RH and JM to demi-god status...in the UK, those 3 are regarded (despite being good at what they do) as being rather naff in the TV firmament. Whilst TGUK is...

    I suspect that this was the best ep so far...one to go...let's hope they don't let the quality slide for the last one in the series...this week's was justification enough for keeping the show on to series 2 I reckon. Subaru v Chopper would've been a swine to shoot but they pulled it off...

    Mr Vovo...why exactly IS it that you want TGA to fail?...I mean, what's to be gained? Having an Oz version means having some proximity to the product, maybe even an influence over what goes on...something you'd NEVER get with TGUK. They'd never listen, you'd never be able to go and see the show...

    I'm wondering if IcedVovo sent in an audition tape...maybe he could replace Charlie ;)

    I thought tonight's hung together really well...let's face it, it's a tough crowd in here, but I do sense that games are being lifted at TGAU HQ...I bet everybody there wants this to work, and it's a tough ask to come in with a brand new team and a fraction of the budget to play catchup with the...

    Blimey. Have a look at some of the TGUK stuff...if that was any more staged it'd have curtains. I'm thinking of May's BMX piece with the CGI'd bikes leaping over the car...or the Parcour piece...or indeed the "Caravanning" sketch where the van burnt down. If you're gonna be harsh, at least be...
